PRESCOTT – A broken drive shaft pierced fuel tanks of a diesel Sunday causing a spill at the off ramp of Exit 44.

The incident occurred around 10 a.m. with members of the Prescott Police Department, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office and Prescott Fire Department responding. There were no injuries, but the EPA had to be notified as more than 100 gallons of diesel fuel had spilled from the ruptured tanks and had to be cleaned off. M&M towing moved the truck from the off ramp.
